Disappearing Samantha - S2-E27

Corrected entry: Lecturer Osgood Writemeyer (later Dr. Bombay played by Bernard Fox) takes a drink from Samantha while Endora is walking around couch to give drink to Osgood. Osgood takes the drink from Samantha but says "Thank you Endora" instead.

Correction: The person you hear saying, "Oh, thank you, Endora," is Larry Tate, who just picked up a Bloody Mary from Endora's tray of drinks.

Correction: Sam explained that she came back because she forgot her shopping list. She most likely left Tabitha in the car, intending to retrieve the list and then leave again.

Samantha for the Defense - S3-E14

Corrected entry: When the prosecutor calls Darrin as a witness, Samantha says "If only he was ready to rest his." The response is inconsistent. I imagine the prosecutor was scripted to say something like "The prosecution calls Darrin Stevens to the case" seems that there should have been a reference to the "case" for Samantha's line to make sense.

Correction: The line is consistent and makes sense. Darrin jokes that if the jury decided now, they'd convict the DA, to which Samantha says "I'm ready to rest my case" (to those at the table). Then the prosecutor calls Darrin, to which Samantha utters "if only he was ready to rest his."


Santa Comes to Visit and Stays and Stays - S6-E14

Plot hole: Mrs. Kravitz, while standing in the Stephenses' front doorway, sees Santa Claus and assumes that it's Darrin in costume. However, the very next shot shows Santa exiting the kitchen (around the corner from the front door) and starting up the hallway toward the living room. There is no possible way Mrs. Kravitz could have seen him when she said she did. (00:09:30)

Darrin Stephens: Sam, don't expect your mother to be gracious. She doesn't do imitations.

Samantha Fights City Hall - S5-E9

Trivia: Because Erin Murphy, who played Tabitha, was ill, her fraternal twin sister Diane took her place in this episode. By this time, Erin and Diane didn't resemble each other as much as they once did, and it was obvious to regular viewers of the show that it wasn't the Tabitha they were used to seeing. The producers received several letters asking "Who was that?"

Show generally

Question: In one episode (not sure which one but it was in the Dick York era), Darrin was arguing with Samantha and said something like "Confiding in a woman is like broadcasting by Telstar." What exactly does that mean and what was Telstar?

Answer: Telstar was an early communications satellite system. Darrin, in a particularly sexist manner reflective of this era, is saying that telling a secret to a woman means it is guaranteed to be "broadcasted" to multiple people.
